Greetings to the List -

I am mounting a couple of heavy (130-pounds each) HP7970e tape drives 
to a 19" rack.

The screw holes that mate to the standard spaced holes on the right 
side of the drive after you open the case are visible and obvious.

However, the holes on the left are hidden under the heavy die-cast(?) 
frame of the drive.

Anyone know how to get to those three screw holes with a horrible disassembly.

There has to be a trick to this that I don't see (so what else is new? :)
